What a Daredevil...

This was taken at the fundraiser right after Mike drew the raffle ticket for the rifle...something got them lagh'n!

Ok...so imagine this...your standing out on your lawn, minding your own business, when you see a man in a wheelchair, slightly out of control, flying down the street in front of you...a few seconds later you see another man chasing after him...

Mike's brother Richard invited him to come up to his house (about 2 miles from where we are staying). After spending an hour or two at Rich's...Mike got a "great" idea! He decided it would be fun to wheel from Rich's house back home...keep in mind Richard lives on the mountain benches of Pleasant Grove... anyone who has been to Richard's house knows the roads are steep...you almost need 4 wheel drive...but steep or not...Mike was off! Well...what started as a peaceful coast turned quickly into a mighty rush! Rich yelled "you ok?!" from a distance while watching...Mike hollered back with a bit of fright, "NO!" Immediately Rich was off after him!...Mike's hands were burning up trying to slow down...luckily Rich caught him and he was just fine...even though I had a slight rush of terror run through me the first time I heard! It created a pretty funny image in my head...but to Mike's credit he didn't give up...he made it all the way home...needless to say Richard stayed a little closer to Mike for the remainder of Mike's adventure! I was very impressed...but not surprised...I already knew Mike had a little streak of dare devilism in him...I love ya for it Mike!

Those Kemp boys ARE daredevils! Whenever they are around, there is sure to be some adventure as well! That's why I always loved visiting my Utah cousins!
